Miserable - this is how we'd describe this experience. We were warned on the quayside that the sea was "a bit rough" - a tad understated we felt but that wasn't the reason for our disappointing experience. There was no commentary of what was happening or where we were headed and the woman on board didn't crack a single smile... More

Lovely, absolutely lovely! We took the Esk Belle II out for an evening out from Whitby for an hour in the early evening. The beautiful summer evening cooperated. Even so, the Skipper and his wife created a comfortable relaxing, and welcoming, experience. No big microphone. Open to answering questions.

We were aboard the Esk Belle III. The outbound trip to Runswick Bay was a wonderful experience, so we 17 would like to thank the Captain, Crew and the team behind them. Thanks to all, Runswick in the Sun, then as we were about to turn back to Whitby "runswick in the rain", what an amazing contrast, as we approached... More

We went on this as a family and you can't knock the value. But up the road is a pirate version. Oh yes. Kids go mental on that bad boy. So this gets an average from me. The pirate boat is a five star though for the same price :)

Only £2.50 per person and under 5's go free. A twenty minute trip that enables you to appreciate Whitby from the water. Staff were helpful and informative. Excellent photo opportunities.

The boat trip yesterday was just Awesome:). £2.50 for just over 20 minutes. (There's not much you can get for that these days). The Captain and staff were friendly and I recommend you "just do it". Thank you for creating some special memories Yellow Boat People:)
